Incontinence

The common challenge in care environments

Incontinence protection is essential to dignified care.  Prolonged moisture against the skin can increase the risk of complications such as incontinence associated dermatitis (IAD),  skin damage associated with exposure to urine or stool1.   It causes considerable discomfort to the patient and can also be time consuming and expensive to treat2.

 Our solutions can help to assist you in keeping your patient or resident’s skin dry throughout the day, ensuring they remain comfortable and moisture at the skin interface is kept to a minimum.

Our Dri-Flo underpads allows fluids to pass to a middle layer, keeping wetness away from the patients skin.  Dri-Flo underpads are also strong enough to be used as a draw sheet eliminating the need for additional linen.
